Family Guy - Seth Macfarlane Releasing Album

'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane is releasing an album.

The cartoonist's debut, 'Music Is Better Than Words', sees him sing a number of 40s and 50s big band tracks, including teaming up for duets with artists including Norah Jones and Sara Bareilles.

Seth said: ''It's rare in this day and age to have the opportunity to create an album that celebrates the classic, sophisticated sound of rich, lush swing orchestrations. It was an absolute joy to sing this music.''

In addition to show tunes, Seth - who's comedies also include 'American Dad!' and 'The Cleveland Show' - also recorded some newer material, including the song 'She's Wonderful Too', originally written by film and television composer Joel McNeely, but with additional lyrics and melodies by Seth.

The cartoonist - who has previously performed at prestigious venues including New York's Carnegie Hall - will celebrate the release with a performance at The Royal Albert Hall in London on August 27 and at the English capital's famous jazz club, Ronnie Scott's, on August 30.
